happened? >> never. >> meanwhile, governor romney spent his time full time on the trail in florida. he was balancing between campaigning and sensitivity for the storm victims. >> keep folks in your thoughts and prayers. it's a big part of what america is, when there are challenges we come together and that help is needed now. >> with five days to go now until the election, both candidates are now back on the trail full time. president obama has set a schedule for the entire home stretch. he kicks it off in the battleground blitz in wisconsin, nevada, and colorado. when he makes his final campaign stop in des moines, iowa, at a rally with the first lady, that's the only stop that she joins him on. the president will have visited eight of the nine battleground states. the one that he's not going to is north carolina. the 2012 presidential election could hinge on this, will the firewall of iowa, ohio, and wisconsin hold up? and you only have to look at the president's travel over the last five days of the campaign to find out that's where the campai campaign believes the race will be deci
-point advantage among women and that's slightly higher than romney's edge among men. the president's job rating sits at 49%. take a look at these numbers. 67% of likely voters approve of his handling of hurricane sandy. haven't seen numbers like that for this president on a single event, of course, going back to bin laden. and we may be seeing a sandy effect in other numbers. when voters are asked which candidate has better leadership qualities, the president -- more now pick the president. two weeks ago mitt romney led in that question, 44% to 40%. this doesn't mean romney doesn't have some things going for him. he's winning independents, the group the president won in 2008. romney leads them now by seven points. and romney leads by five points when voters are asked which candidate is better prepped to create jobs and improve the economy. still, the president continues to have a double digit lead on which candidate will do better at looking 0 out for the middle class. obama leads by 11 points on that economic values question, if you will. so where does this race stand? the best gauge may be th
romney is also racing against the clock, tweaking his argument. and in case you forgot, we've got more than two guys running on tuesday, tonight we'll break down all of the battles, particularly for congress and who will decide control of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. it's saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." we're taking a look at how we got here. presidential elections that aren't close are actually odd. no republican has gotten more than 300 electoral votes since 1988. only four democrats in history have gotten more than 53% of the vote. bottom line, this is 1976 meets 2000 meets 2004. in other words, it's a very close race. so how did we get here? the president began this campaign weighed down by a troubled economy and still faces a jobless rate higher than any incumbent seeking re-election since fdr. in the president's first six months there was a lot of money spent some of it by choice, most of it by need. the wall street bail dpts out, the federal stimulus and the auto bailout. at the t
romney could offer his team going forward, romney unloads to donors and why he thinks he lost. >>> and if one presidential rival isn't enough, the president butts heads with his 2008 opponent. delivering a tough message to senator mccain over congressional criticism for u.n. ambassador susan rice. >>> also, this morning, violence grows as israel and hamas look to be on the brink of war. we'll have the latest report on the ground. good morning from washington. it's thursday, november 15th 2012. this is "the daly rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get first to my first reads. president obama wanted to spend his first post election press conference showing he was ready to reach across the aisle. instead, he found himself on the receiving end of criticisms from not one, but two former presidential rivals. the president himself was loose, confident and at times aggressive trying to show he's in charge of these budget investigations. also to appear magazine 1/2 muss. magnanimous. he pledged to sit down with his rival governor romney. >> there are certain aspects of governor romney's id
obama and governor romney are in the buckeye state as if the whole race may depend on it. guess what? it probably does. we'll go live to the site of the president's event this morning near columbus. there are more than just two guys running for office. house republicans could actually pick up a few seats on tuesday. we'll talk to the gop's man in charge of holding on to the house and the guy who predicted this could happen more than two years ago. november 2, 2012. this is the daily rundown. i'm chuck todd. let's get to my first read of the morning. four days after one of the worst storms ever to hit the country residents are reeling from sandy's impact. according to an early estimate from ploody's analytic the damage will approach $50 billion including property damage and loss of economic aft ty. more than 3.5 home owners and businesses are facing a day without power. the good news the number keeps coming down but there are still millions without power and then new york, staten island where at least 90 people were killed. the situation is particularly grim and residents are still co
with "the daily rundown." >>> together again. mitt romney makes his way to the white house. it's not exactly the way he wanted to get there. but can something constructive come out of a private lunch between president obama and the man he defeated just three weeks ago? that's right. that was just three weeks ago. >>> also this morning, a deep dive into america's longest war. look into lessons learned and the sacrifices made by troops at one combat outpost. tell us about what's been accomplished and what's not in more than a decade of fighting. as the country wakes up obsessed with numbers and winners, for the lottery, that, we've got a very important update on the election night numbers that gave us a winner. they've been changing steadily as the states keep on counting. and some important ways the selection perhaps is now going to get characterized. good morning from washington. it's thursday, november 29, 2012. in case you've been in a bunker all night, the winning powerball numbers are 5, 16, 22, 23, 29. the powerball number itself is 6. the reason i'm here and the reason my entire staff
get 58%. that's a pretty big majority. that includes obviously some people that voted for mitt romney. the question is, when does the white house try to begin fiscal negotiations in earnest? is it going to be in the next week? and do they do this before the end of the year? it is clear that the republicans would love to do temporary deals, small compromises, postpone the big stuff until next year, and perhaps hope the political climate changes a little bit. does the white house realize, and do they come to the conclusion, that this is their best chance to get a big deal that is more on their terms? we shall see. all of this is really going to come into focus next week, trust me, folks. >>> meanwhile, romney's loss has prompted the usual hand wringing that you get after some of these things. a blame game, if you will, among republicans. and some soul searching about the future of the party. as romney said good-bye to campaign staff at his boston headquarters yesterday, republican recriminations were already in full swing. one member of the campaign's finance committee told "the washing
put together a decisive electoral college victory winning at least 303 votes to romney's 206 and at this hour in florida where the president leads by it looks like at this moment 50,000 votes, remains too close to call where we think the vote remains should favor the president. those folks in miami-dade are going to start counting votes when they get to work this morning. but those margin of victory was smaller than in 2008. in the end demographics and a strong turnout operation delivered the president a win in the popular vote, two points. democrats held on to control of the u.s. senate and though democrats had 23 seats to defend the caucus could still actually pick up members for the president's second term, get up to 54 seats perhaps. two senate races do remace too close to call. jon tester narrowly leads danny rehberg. also too close to call we have the house race in the 18th district where allen west is now trailing with 100% in. patrick murphy there. west may be knocked off after one of the nastiest races in the country. congresswoman michele bachmann squeaked to victor

on mitt romney in those 13 days. i want to play something tea party republican senator had to say. this was at the federalist society about the election. let's play it. >> inevitably there are these mandarins in politics who give the voice don't show any contrast. don't rock the boat. so by the third debate, i'm pretty certain mitt romney actually french kissed barack obama. >> okay, let's put aside that image. >> yes. >> this suggests that, you know, these are the manndarins of politics, don't show any contrast, don't rock the boat,s so you have the ted cruzs of the world coming in and the boehners saying we node to caught deal on this, reform on immigration, talk about gay marriage. we need a reformation within the party. is that what the base of the party wants? and if they don't want that, if ted cruz is the voice for that party, how do you get there? >> well, the base does seem to actually want really a lot of these broad contrasts as cruz was talking about. chris, the big difference is that in 2011 right after republicans ended up winning the 2010 midterms, they won. they fe
quickly. bobby jindal throwing mitt romney under the bus over the gifts comments. you have rubio going to iowa. but this is kind of a group that republicans were waiting for, right? this is kind of these people are presum presumably the young talent. >> 15, 16 months ago this time, all we were talking about was all of the republicans who refused to get into the race for 2012. a lot of them because the time wasn't right. obama, they thought, looked very strong and that ended up bearing out. or because they weren't ready. they had just been elected, people like chris christie, people like paul ryan. >> one cycle too soon. >> people like mike pence and mitch daniels, like jeb bush. the republicans have a very deep bench. bobby jindal, a bumper crop of governors and senators as well. >> michelle, molly mentioned chris christie. i will say i was -- i am surprised at the level of criticism he is getting within the republican world. >> absolutely. >> do you buy that this hurts chris christie in any meaningful way going forward? as a potential candidate? >> absolutely not. despite what is happ
. [ grunting ] >>> mitt romney made it to the oval office yesterday, but not quite in the way he'd envision ed it. the two former rivals talked for over an hour over white turkey chili and southwestern grilled chicken salad. delicious. in the private dining room just off the oval office. after a sharp eye spotted boxing gloves in the photograph, aides joked there were no punches thrown. nbc senior political editor mark murray is here with this morning's first read. mark, the picture is worth 1,000 words. that's why they did this, for the picture. >> it was a symbolic moment. not a lot was said. we've gotten little reporting on any big substance, but you could argue the symbolism does matter. we had a campaign that essent l essentially lasted two years, a lot of tough words, a very personal campaign and it proves to the american public that, you know what, we can all move on as a country even after a tough campaign, that life goes on, you accept who wins. you accept who loses even in a close contest after 2,000 which was a statistical tie between al gore and george w. bush, the country does mo
"live and let die" for sure and who is the psycho from bloomberg mus music? >> and mitt romney, the idea is to sell the magazines. attract it. >> yikes. all right. very good. if it's way too early, mark, what time is it? >> it's "morning joe" but now stay tuned for a special edition of "the daily rundown with chuck todd." >>> after climbing the re-election mountain, president obama sets his sites on avoiding the fiscal cliff. if h in a few hours he will tell the country how he plans to make that happen but will he find enough allieses on capitol hill to do it? >>> the answer to that question is in the hands of house speaker john boehner who is offering an candid take on tuesday's results. it might be causing more republican hand wringing to opening the door to deal making. >>> and the british are coming. what president obama and prime minister cameron can do together to get the global economy on track and resolve serious situations like syria. >>> good morning from washington. it's friday, november 9th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown" i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my fir
of mitt romney. the white house even has a new hash tag called #pound#my2k. i asked jay carney whether this is just a game of running out the clock until the real negotiations begin in late december. is everything just killing time until the deadline comes? >> no. >> it seems everybody -- >> it doesn't feel like killing time. >> killing time until the final week and the jet fumes of the airport and then everybody will sit down and hammer this out. >> well, look, here's a fact, the president has on the table a proposal that reduces the deficit by $4 trillion. that is substance. so he has not waited for people to start smelling the jet fumes at national airport. he has actively put forward a plan. >> the white house and republicans are ramping up their pr, something significant is happening behind the scenes. both sides appear to be preparing their own basis to eat their vegetables, if you will. in other words, get ready to make some sacrifices on sacred cows that are required for a grand bargain. for republicans that means swallowing changes to the bush-era tax rates and yesterday the f
voters. carlos gutierrez said that this isn't coming soon enough. >> mitt romney made some mistakes. i think mitt romney's comments is a symptom. i think the disease is the fact the far right of the party controls the primary process. >> senator lindsey graham said sunday he plans to revisit comprehensive immigration reform that was shelved two years ago. >> it's one thing to shoot yourself in the foot. just don't reload the gun. so i intend not to reload this gun when it comes to hispanic. i intend to tear this wall down and pass an immigration reform bill that's an american solution to an american problem but we have nobody to blame but ourselves when it comes to losing hispanics. >> republican pollster tells "the new york times" it is obvious until republicans do do better among nonwhite voters they will cease to become a viable national party. we're going to have to address the fact younger people tend to be less conservative on a number of hot button social issues. a former bush adviser put it more bluntly. we have become what the left was in the '70s. former bush, if another repu
that voted for mitt romney. one in alaska, ed north dakota, south dakota, missouri, arkansas, louisiana, indiana and north carolina. democrats hold both senate seats in west virginia and montana. two members of that democratic class were newly elected this year. joe donnelly knocked off mourdock despite romney won by ten. heidi heitkamp. three more elected in red states including claire mccaskill over ed todd akin in missouri. john tester is your vafd a tight race to win by four in montana. the third was west virginia's joe manchin. he literally flipped romney's numbers completely securing a 25-point victory in a state where obama took a 26-point loss. how about the republicans? nine republicans will hold senate seats in states that voted for president obama. that list includes senate veterans chuck grassley, susan collins of maine as well as wisconsin' ron johnson, mark kurt, rob portman, pat toomi, marco rubio and kelly ayotte. nevada's dean heller was the only to win in a blue state in the 2012 cycle. he narrow will he won over shelly berkeley despite the president winning the state
to distract from avoiding the fiscal cliff. >>> and recommend how president obama and mitt romney yukd yucked it up? the president had the last laugh. find out how he did it in today's deep dive. it's not how you think. good morning from washington. it's tuesday, november 13, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. right to my first read of the morning. just when you thought the petraeus story couldn't get more complicated and troubling. it did. lots of headlines to get to on this. another top military general linked to the scandal, marine general john allen, the top american and nato commander in afghanistan. according to a u.s. senior defense official the fbi uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of e-mails between the general and jill kelley. now kelley is the woman whose initial complaint to the fbi led to the discovery of evidence about the affair between general petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell. defense secretary panetta's comments on the scandal and his future in the obama administration. then there's the fbi agent and friend of jill kel yae's. he's now subjec
. i won. now it's time to negotiate. >> the romney campaign had its final autopsy call, if you will, the governor with his big national fund-raisers. saying the reason he lost was that the president and the democrats gave a lot of handouts to specific special interest groups saying they were free gifts, the reason he was re-elected. republicans did not take too kindly to mr. romney's words. i want to play what bobby jindal and kelly ayotte said. >> this is completely unhelpful. this is not where the republican party needs to go. if you want voters to like you, the first thing you have to do is to like them first and it's certainly not helpful to tell voters that you think their votes were bought. >> i don't agree with the comments. i think the campaign is over and what the voters are looking for us to do is to accept their votes and then go forward. >> don't let the door hit you on the way out. this shows you that mitt romney's time as the leader of the republican party was very, very brief and he's probably not going to have much of a voice as the republican party goes forward. of
is on the candidate, on mitt romney, one is on the campaign, and one is on demographics, the messa message. >> you win and lose as a team. i know that from several elections i've been fortunate to be on the winning team more often than not, but we have to look at everything we did from logistics to turnout to technology to message to tone. when you lose, it's not a good feeling. and we're disappointed, but we're not discouraged. look, chuck, we won 30 governors races in the last couple of years going from 22 to 30. republican governors have got it right in the states with the result, a positive idea driven message. that's where the leaders, i think, are the future of the party are going to come from. so we're winning there. the last three years we won in virginia pretty well, up until this year losing a close election. >> is there a problem the party -- it feels like i'm living deja vu. the democrats were the party that would win when not everybody showed up to the polls. when everybody shows up to the polls in a presidential election, republicans would win. well, in the -- now it seems like it's diff
that law back when mitt romney was governor and they thought john kerry would be president of the united states. unintended consequences. in a press conference yesterday brown touched on the speculation saying he's, quote, unaware of a vacant seat for governor and senator and said that he'll, quote, see what happens but isn't thinking about that right now. speaking of future races for governor, democratic senator mark warner would have a good shot at becoming governor if he does run for his old job. the poll shows warner leading republican candidate bill bolling and leads the attorney general. so far the only announced democrat is mcauliffe. warner says he'll decide by thanksgiving whether to seek another term as governor. >>> finally, nbc news has learned george p. bush, we already knew he would be running for statewide 0 office, now the office he will run for is land commissioner. bush is the son of ex-florida governor jeb bush. cause add stir when he made that texas campaign filing to start raising money. president obama met with labor leaders on tuesday. he'll meet with business lead
